The Hite Art Institute’s MFA program in Studio Art and Design is highly selective in order to allow students generous access to faculty and studios. MFA students receive individual attention and are challenged aesthetically and conceptually. All MFA students receive a scholarship or a teaching assistantship.
The 60-credit MFA is rigorous and professional. Drawing from the diverse expertise of an outstanding faculty, students in the MFA program may choose to focus in one medium or explore and combine a variety of media. Courses are offered in ceramics, drawing, fibers, glass, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, mixed-media, book arts, and new media.
Residing within the College of Arts & Sciences, the MFA program intends to train students in a multidisciplinary curriculum and challenge them to develop their creative practice in relation to cultural, social, philosophical and ethical concerns. This broad perspective on art and social roles will prepare new MFA students to function effectively and meaningfully in the multicultural and global economy.
Students in the MFA program interact with Louisville’s wider arts community by participating in the university’s collaboration with local and regional museums and cultural institutions. Joint projects and internship programs with these organizations strengthen ties between the university and the community and give students unique opportunities to participate in civic life.
Application deadline for fall admission is March 1, 2018.
